The Improvers Ballet Course is aimed at those who have attended a Beginners Ballet Course, Improvers Course or several Ballet classes in the past and are interested in further improving their placement and posture, building up more strength and flexibility and learning new steps. Each class will consist of barre and center work.

The class will begin with barre exercises which, while warming up the body, this will help you improve posture and develop strength and mobility. The center work will build on the exercises done at the barre and it will take you from simple steps onto more challenging ones including travelling combinations and leaps.
